Awo’kwejit Hemp Creations
I’m a Mi’kmaq /Irish /Acadian down-Easter living in the Toronto area.
I’ve been learning Mi’kmaq very, very slowly. But with my jewelry, I’m learning a Mi’kmaq word for every piece I make. About half of us speak the language, fluently. There’s a great movement trying to save the language before our Elders leave us.
So, this is my project. I love working in the arts – all of them. I love my dogs, my home in the country and my partner. I love singing, acting, writing and composing. It’s a good life. I’m enjoying it. And that’s reflected in my work.
